Cheesy One Pot Sausage & Veg Pasta 4 0 5 2

A complete child friendly meal served right from the single pot of your slow cooker. Sausages, pasta and vegetables with a cheesy twist!

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 5 hrs 10 mins
  • 15 mins

    5 hrs 10 mins

    5 hrs 25 mins

  • Yields: 6


16 small pork chipolata sausages cut in half (or 8 regular pork sausages cut into quarters)

500g of small diced mixed vegetables (I used a bag of frozen veg)

100g diced bacon

400g can of crushed tomatoes

1/2 cup BBQ sauce

1 cup of raw macaroni pasta

1.5 cups water (total)

1 cup grated tasty

Parmesan cheese to serve


1Add vegetables to slow cooker

2Add bacon and cut, raw sausages

3Combine tomatoes, BBQ sauce, and just half a cup of water and pour over

4Cook on low for 4.5hrs

5Add the remaining 1 cup of water (hot) and raw pasta. The additional water will be absorbed by your pasta during cooking

6Cook on low for an additional 40mins or until pasta is cooked to your liking.

7Just keep an eye on it during this stage as if your cooker is hotter than others it may need extra water but just add 1/2 cup at a time if you think it's needed.

8Stir through tasty cheese then serve

9Top with a sprinkle of grated Parmesan cheese for a complete one pot meal for the whole family

This recipe worked really well. Quick and easy to prep, it makes a good weekday dinner. I used diced carrots, capsicum, cauliflower, and celery as my vegetables and the family loved it. I’ll make this again.

Trying this one on the kids tonight, I will post their verdict !

Cooked this the other night. One of the simplest slow cooker recipes that I’ve made! I used fresh veg (diced carrot) initially – then added thawed frozen peas and finely chopped spinach when I added the pasta (to keep their colour and texture).
Simple flavours – was a hit with my husband and 3 year old! Will definitely make this again.
I did need an extra 1/2 cup of water towards the end. In future I would cook for 3.5 hours on low then add the pasta, as my slow cooker seems fairly hot.
